March 11, 2014 at 6:03 AM (PT)
RADIO ONE INC. has named EDDIE HARRELL, JR. as VP/GM of its CLEVELAND cluster of radio stations. HARRELL joined the company in 2011 as VP/GM of its stations in COLUMBUS OHIO.
Radio Division Pres. CHIS WEGMANN said, "EDDIE has proven to be a leader with great community ties leading our COLUMBUS cluster to solid performances in ratings and revenue. I'm confident that he will continue the same leadership taking over for JEFF WILSON, who will be concentrating on his regional responsibilities full-time."
Newly appointed RVP JEFFREY WILSON added, "Beyond his outstanding contributions to RADIO ONE in COLUMBUS, EDDIE has been recognized as one of the most reputable leaders in central OHIO's nonprofit, civil rights and educational institutions. We are thrilled to see him move those talents to Northeast OHIO, where as a CLEVELAND BROWNS season ticket holder, his drive to the games will be a lot shorter."
HARRELL commented on his new position, "I am very excited to continue my career with RADIO ONE by joining the team in CLEVELAND. This team has set a high standard of excellence in all facets of user and customer experience metrics, and I'm confident we will accelerate the momentum to improve results and impact change in the communities we serve."
